Just heard about this Goldman Sachs survey. Why didn’t those overworked analysts just sleep more? Like it’s not that hard? Idk just feels like they’re complaining.

I got a invite for a round two interview at Goldman. The email states to reach out with any questions. Is it poor form to ask “how to prep” for this? I really love the role and am stoked about it.
Thinking of getting my first proper watch after college. 7 months in my firm now, thinking of getting this gem for my 1yr work anniversary. Budget is 5k, I love GS, thought of getting an old tank as well. Thoughts?
Thoughts on BB M&A investment banking post-mba? How hard is it to land a job at MS, GS or JPM post-mba? What would the exit opps be like assuming I’d only want to do it for 3-4 years?
Pulled the trigger on the GS Snowflake! It’s one of those watches (and brands) where the more you learn and look, the more you love. I’m a big fan of the attention to detail, hand finishing and artistry that goes into making GS watches. Completely over the moon!
Just curious, what do these bankers do working 100hrs/week at Goldman Sachs? Are these highly paid jobs?

Do investment banks pay differently? I know Goldman is the most “prestigious” but from my limited knowledge have always thought that pay was always relatively similar for any IBD
I'm planning on purchasing a Grand Seiko sbgh273. Is it possible to negotiate with an AD on the price? I heard GS has been cracking down on discounts and this model is also a semi-limited version, so I wasn't sure if there's any room for negotiation. I'm also considering purchasing from a grey market dealer who has it listed for $5500. Is it worth the extra $800 to start building a relationship with an AD?
Just walked into a GS store and found a beautiful high-beat model. It’s listed at $6,300 but I’ve heard watch prices are negotiable...what would be a reasonable price to pay?
Anyone move from Consulting as a Manager to Goldman VP? What is a reasonable base / bonus offer and what should I negotiate up to?

My SO is on the bench right now, so we're visiting her family. But I still have to work. I feel so bad having to do work. I want to be on the bench too! Or at least take time off.
I’m looking to leave consulting. But a McKinsey recruiter reached out to me recently about interviewing. I just don’t have the passion to go through case interviews and then actually work in another consulting company as a PPT monkey. Am I crazy ?

Is it appropriate for junior consultants to connect on LinkedIn with senior clients from a project? I’m about to roll off my project and want to keep in touch with these clients given they work in my dream exit job. For context, the client is senior in title but relatively young (mid 30s) so not like retirement aged executive who may find my networking too forward. We had great interactions throughout but no explicit invite to connect on LinkedIn. TIA!

How soon is too soon to be preparing for a lateral move? I did my 1L summer internship in a niche area of securities law, loved it, took courses on it. I decided I wanted to explore securities law a little more broadly and not to pigeonhole myself. The firm I’m at is great—doing sec lit—but has zero work in that niche area that I liked. I’m afraid that I am passing on a passion, and I don’t want to get too “old” for a firm to take me on if I have zero experience in a specialty area. Advice? Thx
